Wolves summer target Kieffer Moore could now make Bournemouth move

Kieffer Moore is reportedly being lined up by Championship leaders Bournemouth, after the striker was heavily linked with Wolves last summer.

The Sun have claimed the Cherries are interested in snapping up the Wales international from Cardiff City.

Scott Parker is apparently keen on him to provide cover and competition.

The report notes how Cardiff were ‘close’ to selling Moore to Wolves in the summer.

After the club declined to sign Willian Jose permanently, there was some speculation that Molineux officials would move for a new striker.

After all, Raul Jimenez was coming back from his head injury and no one was really sure how he’d get on.

And Fabio Silva is still very raw.

Wolves were linked quite heavily with a move for Moore but in the end, nothing materialised.

Since those transfer links, Moore has not been in particularly good form for Cardiff.

He has managed just five goals in 24 games so far this term.

Despite that fairly uninspiring return, Bournemouth are now supposedly keen to sign 29-year-old.

He is valued at around £10 million by Cardiff, with Bournemouth hoping to get him for less.

Kieffer Moore should still be someone to consider for Wolves

Wolves have struggled to score goals this season, but the chances have been there.

In an ideal world, recruitment officials would bring in another striker this month.

Moore would bring something different for Wolves. He would potentially finish off some of those chances the team have been creating – especially the aerial ones.

It looks like Wolves will be having a quiet month. If there is to be any incoming it could be a centre-back, with Lage reiterating his desire to strengthen there.

But you never know. If Traore is sold, maybe the money can be reinvested into a deal for Moore, or someone like him, and a centre-back.
